I cannot believe that History is repeating itself! The British have been a great disappointment in this act of war declared by the the Iranian terrorist regime against them. Chamberlain spirit is still alive and well in the current British government and people.

I agree. The vast majority of our airmen that were captured by the N.Vietnamese only gave in after unbelievable torture taking weeks or months. The short time that these sailors were in captivity should not have generated this type of submission.

Here you go.......

“Iran’s abrupt release of 15 British sailors and marines is raising hopes the country might compromise on other disputes, most notably its nuclear program”

God help us, it did not take long for the useful idiots, traitors, and defeatists in the West to fall for the Iranian terrorist regime trick. Exactly as we discussed yesterday!

They should have refused to shake his hand in my opinion. An anti-semite and a barbarian he is, and deserves no thanks from those he took prisoner.

Jesse Jackson was about to fly over if Nancy P hadn’t freed the hostages.

England is now the new France. This could have been settled the minute the sailors were confronted but they were told to stand down. Shamefull, they can’t even protect themselves.

When asked what prompted the sudden release, he said London had sent a letter promising that such incidents would not be repeated.

If true, Britain caved and that is really too bad. I'd like to wait, however, to see the contents of this alleged letter.

Did you read that article? It’s drivel by someone who has no idea what they’re talking about.
Hopefully not many will buy into her ignorant views - though the dems will probably lap it up.
Time will tell..........
